What Is a Vitamin C Powder? A Derm Weighs In

Vitamin C powder


Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant that is known to help brighten, soften and refresh the appearance of dull skin. If you’ve been around the skin-care block, you’ve definitely heard about vitamin C eye creams, moisturizers and serums — but what about vitamin C powders?

What Is a Vitamin C Powder?

According to Dr. Nazarian, a vitamin C powder is simply another form of the antioxidant in powder form that you mix with water to apply. “Vitamin C Powders were developed to control the instability of the ingredient because it’s a very unstable vitamin and oxidizes easily.” The vitamin C in it is more stable in powder form and is reconstituted every time you mix it with a liquid and apply it.
